NARRATOR: In a cruel and not so distant future ... Books are the currency of the New American Empire and only the rich are allowed to read. One outlaw librarian will rise against the system.
[scene opens with an exterior shot of the Seattle Public Library, then cut to inside as a man caresses the neck of a young female librarian (long black hair, white flower in her hair, long white dress)]
ENGINEER: So, is my librarian ready for some fun?
[they kiss passionately, as he pushes her up against the bookshelf and she wraps her leg around him]
NARRATOR: She was set up and betrayed. Given a mission she couldn't refuse.
[cut to an older man wearing glasses, spying on them from the shadows, then to the librarian (now wearing glasses) sitting in a chair with her hands tied together]

PROFESSOR: [in voice over] I will teach you to care for the wealth of this city!
[cut to an exterior shot of the Seattle Center Monorail]
NARRATOR: A civilization of obedience ...
[cut back to the professor]
PROFESSOR: Disobedience will not be tolerated.
[cut to a still image of a female librarian (black hair, glasses, holding a hand-held 16mm camera) sitting on a bench, while another female librarian (bright red hair, white blouse, short grey skirt) stands with a hand to her hip while biting down on the tip of her glasses]
NARRATOR: And a bizarre sisterhood of librarians ...
[cut to the engineer and guild leader speaking together]
GUILD LEADER: I want you to set up the sisterhood ...
